Title: Red palm oil carotenoids – Potential role in disease prevention
Authors: Benade, AJ Spinnler 
Issue Date: 2012
Publisher: Elsevier
Series/Report no.: Watson RR (ed): Bioactive Food as Dietary Interventions for Cardiovascular Disease;
Abstract: Refined red palm oil (RPO) contains a spectrum of natural carotenoids which exhibit diverse biological activity. Based on available scientific evidence the inclusion of moderate amounts of RPO or RPO-based products into the daily diet is a healthful and sustainable dietary approach to the prevention of sub-clinical vitamin A deficiency. Carotenoids have the potential to influence molecular and cellular processes which could be instrumental in reducing the risk for chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease and cancer. Keywords: Antioxidants; Biological significance; Carotenoid content; Degenerative diseases; Epidemiological studies; Inflammation; Provitamin A; Red palm oil; Safety of food carotenoids
